Risk

Another for my collection of frameworks:

“After observing children on playgrounds in Norway, England and Australia, Dr. Sandseter identified six categories of risky play: …”

  • exploring heights,
  • experiencing high speed,
  • handling dangerous tools,
  • being near dangerous elements (like water or fire),
  • rough-and-tumble play (like wrestling), and
  • wandering alone away from adult supervision.

What!  No mention of listening at keyholes?  Downloading from JStor?  Maybe that’s unique to American children.
